This golf club is situated just northwest of the city and west of Gamla Uppsala. In addition to a beautifully manicured course, it also offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and a modest pub and restaurant and pro shop.
This ice skating arena, formerly the home of Uppsala's regional hockey team, is now open to the public since the action has been moved to the spanking new ice at the Uppsala Arena. The old facility hosts regular skating nights, ice shows and other events on a regular basis.
Gamla Uppsala is the core of the old prehistoric settlement that became the modern city. Once the seat of Norse worship in the Viking age, nothing remains of the glorious temples and legendary sites of sacrifice and worship of bygone days but burial mounds and rune stones, but the museums and themed attractions of the village provide some fascinating insight into the history of one of Sweden's richest points of history and heritage.
This little nature preserve is sandwiched between a wooded hillock and the banks of the Fyris. It is not large, but does contain some of the finest options for camping, hiking and picnicking.
This is one of the many nature preserves that gird the shores of Lake Mälaren. It contains extensive hiking trails as well as a few choice coves and inlets that are great for swimming, boating and fishing.
This park is situated on the northern end of a peninsula, just across the sound from Uppsala. Though it is a peninsula, it is most conveniently reached from Uppsala by water, as the nearest road connection is some distance south, a good deal closer to Stockholm. Apart from activities like hiking and camping, the park has large dunes and open spaces that are used for activities like ATV'ing.
This is the site for Formula Offroad championships.
